This is Ding (Arifin) from Singapore, and am a heavy user of my TravelScoot (I call it my Hog) for the past 2 years, and have had lots of dings (no relation to me .. lol!) and accidents (particularly running over people's toes ... Singapore is a very crowded place, especially when you are on the subway train platforms here).
As for the velcro strap, I didn't bother with it, and have used the elastic rubber hooks that you probably can find at a motor accessories shop. I have attached a picture for your readers' reference.
